89w ago - Today Ubisoft PR Coordinator Alex Monney has confirmed that From Dust will be coming to PSN on September 27, 2011 with details below!
To quote: The wait to experience Eric Chahi's award-winning strategy game, From Dust is almost over. We're happy to announce that From Dust will be coming to the PlayStation Network on September 27th.
In a little less than three weeks, players will get a chance to experience the winner of Game Critic's Awards Best Strategy Game of E3 and what Game Informer called "a breath of fresh air."
From Dust puts players in control of The Breath, a mysterious power used by a primitive tribe to battle against the forces of nature.
Players will use this power to help the tribe regain the knowledge of their ancestors. However, regaining this knowledge won't be an easy task for players as the world of From Dust hosts volatile natural elements, including volcano eruptions and tidal waves.
From Dust will be available on the PlayStation Network on September 27th for $14.99.
89w ago - Digital Reality Designer and Director of Publishing Balazs Horvath has announced today that SkyDrift is now live on PlayStation Network.
To quote: Skydrift combines the speed and intensity of air racing with the action of vehicular combat, and it just hit PSN!
Give it a shot - we think it's a unique, exciting racing title. In Skydrift, your task is simple: beat your opponents at all costs.
You can outmaneuver them on the course, or try to get the upper hand by deploying one of six different power-ups, from missiles and aerial mines to turbo boosts and repair kits. Your opponents will also be gunning for you and trying to take you down by any means necessary, so stay on your toes.
When developing the tracks for the game, we wanted to create courses that would be both visually compelling and offer players unique challenges. The exotic locations in Skydrift include a tropical paradise, a frozen glacial setting, and a sprawling mine area.
You can even race some of these tracks in a backward variant for an extra shot of variety. Skydrift also offers up eight different planes, each one controlling differently and catering to a different play style than the others. There are also 32 different skins that players can use to customize...
